This year, ROBLOX has embarked on an ambitious mission to completely revamp avatar customization. In anticipation of the upcoming R15 avatar, we have already begun implementing new tools in the Studio to prepare for our transition towards a fully community-created avatar system. The first phase of our project is already underway, and we are excited to share the progress we have been making so far!
You asked, we listened. Here at ROBLOX, we want to continue providing our creators with a dynamic creative toolbox so that they can build the ultimate gaming experience. Our vision is founded on powering the imagination of up-and-coming game developers. In that respect, we believe that you should be equipped with powerful, easy-to-use tools that will not only allow for a greater assortment of immersive environments, but also add another layer of aesthetic diversity to your games and experiences. Today, we’re proud to announce that we have significantly expanded the visual capabilities of our platform with a medley of new, breathtaking post-processing effects and anti-aliasing.

Our mission is simple. We are creating the ultimate virtual universe where you and your friends can let your imagination run wild across a plethora of meticulously detailed environments. We also want to inspire and empower our builders to create an amazing first-rate experience. That’s why we’re always thrilled to offer more tools and materials that will give you the flexibility you need. We recently added another batch of new and exciting smooth terrain materials to broaden the variety of worlds you can explore!
Here at ROBLOX our dream is to allow digital creators and explorers to play, learn, and socialize with their friends across any and all devices. As new avenues of technology open up to the world, new ways to play and make amazing interactive experiences do too. So we’re thrilled to announce that ROBLOX has officially taken the next step into the world of virtual reality with our launch on Oculus Rift.
Social experience and interaction is in the very DNA of ROBLOX. We enable creators and gaming enthusiasts from all over the world to develop and play on a single platform. The future of collaborative creation technology will be cloud based and tools such as Google Docs and Slack are paving the way. At ROBLOX, we are taking collaborative creation one step further with introduction of Team Create. Team Create is a new Studio feature that allows you to create with your friends in real-time.
You can invite your friends to join you in Studio after enabling your Team Create for your game. While each of you has Studio running on your machine, you will all be able to; edit the same game place, see what everyone is working on, and even chat with each other.
Here at ROBLOX we’re always striving to bring our vision of the world’s best Imagination Platform to every platform available. We’ve made huge strides in recent months — launching ROBLOX on Xbox One, and making the leap into the VR space — but there are still a myriad of consoles and platforms explore! We’re not content to just go after the newest or most popular, ROBLOX should be available on older consoles too.
That’s why we’re very excited to announce that the next platform that will bring our universe of amazing UGC content is one that has been a mainstay of gaming for years. A console that has outsold the Wii U and the Xbox One combined.
The annual Egg Hunt has long been ROBLOX’s biggest, and most loved event. Every year we do something different, and this year is no exception. We’ve rebranded Egg Hunt and turned it into an all new event. Get ready for our Eggciting Eggventure!
Starting today, we’re Beta Testing Eggventure on PC. The official game is available now as paid access, and features most of the eggs you can earn in the event. If you want to get a head start on the event you can be one of our testers. Eggventure goes live and free for everyone on March 22nd.
Here’s a breakdown of the event:
- Eggventure officially runs from March 22 through April 3.
- It’s all contained in one big game.
- There are 24 eggs to collect. That includes 2 Faberge eggs and an Admin egg!
Longtime ROBLOX fans will notice that Eggventure is an homage to the Egg Hunts of the past. The map is massive, split up into multiple zones, each with their own challenges and eggs to collect!
The challenges in Eggventure vary from cooperative puzzle solving, to PvP combat, to good old fashioned scavenger hunting. There’s a ton of stuff to do in Eggventure. You can fight a giant dragon, help a friendly wizard, and battle it out against the meanest gym teacher in the New Yolk City public school system.
There will be special items in the catalog, like a categgapult, and the egg beater sword, that will help you earn certain eggs, so make sure to snag one, or team up with a friend who has one. And the Eggventure will support VIP servers so you can play solo or with your friends.
The Eggciting Eggventure opens for everyone on March 22 and runs through April 3rd. If you want to be a beta tester the Eggventure place is currently open in paid access. Be sure to use hashtag #Eggventure2016 to chat with other ROBLOX fans on social media and share tips for collecting the eggs. Happy hunting!
